A Personal Essay

There are many ways of telling a story but if you want to narrow it down I have two. The first, make it all up, the second capture what’s right in front of you. The people that inspire me do both: David Lynch, Agnes Varda, George Melies, Carol Morley and I suppose that’s what cinema…

We Need Hope

The world needs hope. I was watching this interview with Emma Watson and Caitlin Moran and I’m paraphrasing but they were talking along the lines about how people seem to think that there’s nothing anyone can do to change the world anymore. I’m not talking about big political figures or science, the people I’m talking…

Romanticising Bristol – UK Chronicles

Last weekend my housemate left to go to Bristol to meet up with some of her old friends. At the time I thought nothing of it and wished her a good trip, little did I know when she would come back that I would be enchanted by the place. The main reason was a club…

A Safe Space

Judgment is a word that holds a great deal of weight. It’s heavy and unpleasant. Throughout early teenage years, out loud, I would judge people based on their appearance, their differences just because everyone else was doing it. On the other hand, in my head, I was judging those who hurt others with their words…

An Evolution

One of my goals for this year was to write a blog post once a week but this has posed to be difficult. Being at university, time is an abstract concept, it both seems to be endless but restricted. I have around 11 contact hours a week but I also have to consider all the…

Namibian Memories

As I am not planning on traveling anywhere for quite some time, content is running low. But I do have stories. Of adventures past. The first I’ll be sharing is the family holiday we took to Namibia. I was turning 14 in the Summer of 2011. What brought us there was an Italian friend of…

This Little Moving Box

Deadlines and exams are approaching. I have already had two assignments, completed and submitted so that’s my excuse for not being able to write a post last week. My new years resolution, was to continue blogging and set a schedule but as all things go, organization is not my forte. Anyway, I was thinking about…

Reading – UK Chronicles

Upon living in the UK, you might wonder why I would take my time and stop in a little town 30mins away from London. Reading. Well, it’s quaint and quiet. A good place to get away from the racket of busy city life. But most importantly it’s where I come to visit my lovely boyfriend,…

Flatmates vs. Housemates – UK Chronicles

Your 1st year of university can be scary and exciting and all the emotions in between. I remember the day before I was leaving in my boyfriend’s arms and thinking, I’m going to miss this place, I’m going to miss my friends and family. What if this and what if that. It was the first…

Living in Brighton – UK Chronicles

I’ve been living in Brighton for over a year and a half, for most people that is just the beginning of something but for me, it’s nearing the end of my uni life. I’m doing a 3 year Bachelor Degree in Film Studies, and it’s Christmas break at the moment and I’ve realised how quickly…

Somewhere I Used to Call Home

When you’ve grown up in a place for 11 years and your parent tells you it’s time leave that behind, it can be scary. Very very scary. When somewhere you call home, slowly disappears into just some other city, you say you’ve been to, can feel very disorienting. Houston, Texas. A place I once called…

The End, For Now – Interrail 2016

Looking back now, feeling very nostalgic, this was probably one of the best days on that trip and I will cherish all our memories forever. June 25th 2016 It was our last day in Amsterdam and we wanted to make the most of it. Nothing planned just a city where we could spend time together,…
